Temple upsets mistake-prone Vanderbilt 37-7

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — P.J. Walker threw two touchdown passes and ran for a third score as Temple forced seven turnovers to upset Vanderbilt 37-7 in a game that ended Friday at 1:14 a.m. Central time.

Temple beat a Southeastern Conference team for the first time since a victory over Florida in 1938. The Owls spoiled the head coaching debut of Vanderbilt's Derek Mason, hired after James Franklin left for Penn State.

Temple had 13 takeaways all of last season while going 2-10, but the Owls continually forced Vanderbilt into mistakes.

That included a game-changing play in the final minute of the first half. Vanderbilt trailed 14-7 when Avery Ellis sacked Stephen Rivers and forced a fumble that Averee Robinson returned 73 yards for a Temple touchdown.

The game started after a lightning delay that lasted over 90 minutes.
